About this time Dr. Powhatan Clark was elected Assistant Professor of Chemistry, etc., and acted as secretary of the Board of Supervisors, but no other changes were made in our small circle o to be a high officer in the order of Knights of the Golden circle, of the existence of which order I was even ignorant, until explained to me by Major Smith and Dr. Clark.
But in November, 1860, no man ever approached me offensively, to ascertain my views, or my proposed course of action in case of secession, and no man in or outedical director of the trans-Mississippi Department, with General Kirby Smith.

I assisted him, but with no success, and he is now at Baltimore, Maryland.
